Statement from Filmmaker

When Mira Olsson sent her script The Errand to me I immediately knew I wanted to tell this story. This is a simple story about a young girl who doesn't ask for permission to make a change, she takes a bold action and gets a bold result. We shot this project in one 10 hour day with one process trailer, multiple camera mounts, two cameras, four company moves and a child actress who had never acted in a film. We also did this in December just before the shortest day of the year! I am so proud of this film, of the team and what we were able to accomplish! I am really happy that we were also able to do this safely at the beginning of the Omicron surge, and am looking forward to getting back to work post Covid!
